Model U.N. (MUN) – Beginner Level (Grades 5+)
We face many challenges in the world we live in, but together we can overcome them. The basis of Model U.N. is working together in creating solutions for issues experienced by people across the world. Students will study various countries by learning of their issues, culture, and identity, then “represent” that country during Model U.N. virtual mock diplomacy conferences. During conferences, students will present the information they have learned to students from other towns, states, and countries. They will debate other students, argue the positions of their country, and work to influence the solutions proposed to solve the topical issues. MUN is hard work, but is an excellent way to develop confidence in public speaking skills, world history, and to learn the ways of our world.
Beginner MUN is appropriate for students with little to no MUN experience. The curriculum is similar to the advanced level, but with more guided instruction. A great place for newcomers to start!
This class will run for the remainder of the 20-21 school year. We strongly encourage that students who sign up commit for the entire session.
This class is designed for students in grades 5 and up.
